We’re buried in snow. BURIED. With our sixth foot of snow in 19 days (and, dear God, more coming tomorrow), we’re not exactly sure where to put all that powder. We’re starting to get antsy, even though there’s plenty of time for outdoor snowy fun because the kids hardly. Ever. Have school anymore, for all the snow days.
All these snowed-in no-school-no-work days have given us lots of time find some yummy recipes, explore some new art, watch plenty of movies, and get crazy in the snow. Here’s a list of some of the goodness we’ve kept busy with lately:
The Tall Girl has a renewed interest in drawing, so I hooked her up with Creativebug, and she’s going through Lisa Congdon’s Line Drawing class, and loving it. (as a bonus, I’ve listened in on her lessons and done some linework and doodling myself.)
With all this snow and ice, I’m dreaming of the surf and sand, and loving these images of waves crashing.
This Creamy Chicken and Rice recipe was a cinch to make, and delicious to boot.
I’ve become mildly obsessed with Jeffrey Hunt’s shockingly gorgeous gemstones. I mean. What I wouldn’t do to be able to design some pieces around a few of those beauties.
I enjoyed this worthwhile article on being an artist. Here’s a quote from it:
“Being an artist is not just about what happens when you are in the studio. The way you live, the people you choose to love and the way you love them, the way you vote, the words that come out of your mouth, the size of the world you make for yourselves, your ability to influence the things you believe in, your obsessions, your failures — all of these components will also become the raw material for the art you make.”

Two weeks ago, I had a blizzard sale in my shop. Today, I’m upping the ante, and having a now-this-is-just-getting-ridiculous sale. Enter “snowpocalypse” during checkout for 20% off in the shop through Saturday. (Does not include custom items).
I’d love to hear how you’ve been passing your cold, snowy days away.
